Act One: Field Trip Funding.
Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Metropolitan Phoenix and Metropolitan Tucson as well as nearby areas that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted bus services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.
In the 2017-2018 school year, Act One brought more than 37,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on more than 86 performance field trips and nearly 100 museum field trips in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.
